Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Pain Dysfunction Syndrome
TMJ dysfunction may cause a mal-alignment of teeth, jaws and muscles. Symptoms include pain, clicking, grating sounds, and difficulty in opening the mouth widely. Some dysfunctions are induced by trauma, others are iatrogenic: caused by dental restorations that do not adequately support the way a person bites. We have successful non-surgical treatments for this serious problem.
Discovering Infections Under the Teeth
Infections can exist under the teeth and may be undetectable on X-Rays, especially in root canal treated teeth. Toxins leak out from infections and depress the normal functions of the immune system, leading to dis-ease.
Education on Relationship between Specific Teeth and Illness
When a tooth becomes infected or diseased, the organ on the same acupuncture meridian could also become unhealthy. The opposite is also true: dysfunction in a specific organ could lead to a problem in the corresponding tooth.
